[ARCHIVED] City Offers Free Yard Waste Pickup For Two Weeks

Yard Waste Bags

Geneva residents will be able to get a head start on their spring yard work with free collection available for two weeks in March.

The free yard waste disposal is part of the City’s refuse contract with Lakeshore Recycling Systems, Inc. Yard waste bags set out with garbage will be picked up for free – no refuse sticker required – on residents’ regular pickup day the weeks of March 15 and 22.

Yard waste should be placed in Kraft brown paper bags and should not weigh more than 50 pounds. Accepted yard waste items include grass clippings, vines, weeds, leaves, plants, pinecones, small branches, and garden waste.

Starting with garbage collection on Thursday and Friday, April 1-2, a refuse sticker will need to be affixed to each bag as part of the City’s regular yard waste program, which runs through November.

Tree limbs exceeding 1 inch in diameter should be disposed of as part of the City’s monthly brush pickup that is scheduled to start in April.

More information about Geneva’s refuse and recycling services can be found on the City’s website.
